A very good cast bu curiously flat. For the curious Shakespeare-fan only.
Cruise and Kidman play a wealthy yuppie couple whose boredom leads them into sexual adventures that threaten them and their marriage. Well done.
Douglas Reeman is also the author of the Richard Bolitho series under the nom de plume of Alexander Kent. Better than the Hornblowers, but not up to the Aubrey/Maturin series. Stick with those.
A second-rate update of "An Officer And A Gentleman." Stick with the original.
A very readable history of one of the most important naval forces in history. The theory that the Athenian Navy was a major factor in the emergence of democracy isn't a new one but it isn't very well developed in this work.
